Pediatric Amplification Perspectives 2014: Part 2

Dillon, Ching, and Golding (2014) report commercially available hearing aids are available that switch automatically from omni to directional mode (if and only if) the directional mode has a superior signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Further, it is well known and has been consistently demonstrated that children require a more advantageous SNR than do adults, and it is far more likely that adaptive directionality will provide a listening advantage rather than a disadvantage.

Parkinson's Disease: Update 2008

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is referred to as a motor system disorder resulting from loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. PD usually impacts people over age 50, but can sometimes affect younger people as well. Diagnosis of PD is based on clinical signs and symptoms, there are no objective tests (blood tests, radiographic studies, etc.) of PD. The four primary symptoms of PD include:

Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss—Treatment Status

Dallan, De Vito, and colleagues (2010) re-stated the previously declared nature of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) as a true audiological emergency. However, they state that the natural history of SSNHL is currently unknown (i.e., how often does it occur, how much will resolve if untreated, what are the natural outcomes if untreated, which treatments have a scientific basis, what are the outcomes of the scientifically proven treatments, etc.). Dallan, De Vito, and colleagues report that the unknowns are important factors in understanding and evaluating treatments.

Consciousness Undefined: Opinion Editorial by Douglas L. Beck, AuD, Web Content Editor

I have no idea how to define consciousness. Then again, even if I could define it, there’s roughly a zero percent probability we’d all agree. Since the beginning of time, humans have tried to figure it out. It seems important to understand the difference between being conscious and being unconscious, particularly as audiologists get more involved with brains and neuroscience, fMRI, neuroaudiology, and cognition.

Diabetes and Hearing Loss: 2008 Update and Review

Type I diabetes (insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM) is often referred to as “juvenile onset” diabetes and represents some 5 to 10 percent of all known cases of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes (non-IDDM) accounts for some 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases. Type 1 diabetics must acquire insulin via injection or a pump. Type 2 diabetics can often control their diabetes via healthy eating and exercise and sometimes oral meds are prescribed.
